, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
. >> we're waiting on florida right now florida is still too close to call. this of course is one of the t hotly contested states. florida too close to call. the polls are closed in florida. onto illinois where obama has taken illinois. as you can see there illinois is going to the president. maine also going to the president tonight. nbc news projecting president obama is the winner of maine. onto maryland where we are also seeing president obama take maryland. and that of course ten electoral votes. >> interesting. the state of massachusetts governor romney's home of course as governor at least being called for barack obama. also home to a very high profile senate race between senator scott brown and elizabeth warren of harvard. the woman who set up consumer protection bureau. mississippi is called for mitt romney. six electoral votes there and the state of missouri too early to call. >> new hampshire, we have been waiting on another hotly contested state. too close to call in new hampshire so far. this is four electoral votes and one of the hotly contested states new hampshir
legion and get to 270 electoral votes? give mitt romney florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado. his shortest path is to win those states. he would win a majority of the nine swing states and that gets him to 275, 263 for barack obama. he also needs for that scenario to win the state of ohio. tyler mentioned the cleveland airport today. what -- now, let's go back to this map again, put the swing states again in yellow and say, what is barack obama's shortest path? he just needs to win three of the nine swing states, those three, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, ohio, the state we have just been talking about and also nevada, big harry reid's home state, the senate leader, big union vote, big hispanic vote there. if he gets those three things, barack obama gets to 271 electoral votes and wins, tyler. >> but not any three of those nine states? >> specifically those three. >> specifically those three. say it again, ohio, nevada -- >> ohio, wisconsin, nevada. if barack obama gets those three, can win every other swing state -- >> do the polls tell us that he is ahead in those three? >>
, virginia, florida, colorado, too close to call. the senate, mostly breaking as expe expected, but the democrats did pick up three new seats. republicans projected to hold the house as well. >> all right. let's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more color on what we're seeing as the most recent poll closings. over to you, john. >> we're almost completely closing the map of coloring in the map of all the states we knew in advance where they were going to faull. the only state where polls have not closed yet is the state of alaska. we're very confident mitt romney is going to win that based on polls before the election. so we're really waiting for those seven battleground states that haven't been filled in yet. again, to reiterate, as we've talked about before, if president obama wins the state of florida this race is over. he's going to be re-elected for a second term. but if mitt romney wins it, he's got to also win north carolina, he's got to win virginia, where it's very close, and he's got to win the state of ohio, which is really a big one hanging out
about florida with 29 electoral votes, and north carolina with 15. you add those together to the base states that mitt romney has. that only makes 235 electoral votes. president obama with 303. that doesn't mean mitt romney cannot win. he's very close in some other states. in colorado, for example, in new hampshire, he -- but he's going to have to make up a lot of ground in a lot of places to get there and the last swing state polls we showed showed six. point lead in ohio. two-point lead for the president in florida. one-point lead in virginia. big hill for mitt romney to claim clitomorrow night. >>> let's go to the finance.yahoo.com poll. the aftermath from sandy. do you think the pace of the recovery will help or hurt either candidate? go to vote at finance.yahoo.com. josh, do you think at this point the voters especially in our north carolina of the woods will use this storm as an issue as they cast their ballots or not? >> it is certainly going to be a matter of consequence but the real important question here is turnout. how many voters are actually going to come out. what we've

a lead in the real clear politics average of polls. that's north carolina and florida. all the others, iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, the rest of that set of battle ground states are all leading for obama. now, many of them are close, but if mitt romney only carries florida and north carolina among those battleground states, he's only 235 electoral votes. what he has to do is put together in this final sprint victories in states like virginia, like in ohio, like wisconsin, like colorado. that's the way he could get to 270 electoral votes. we'll see whether the two candidates turn out machines produce the way they have hoped they will. and i talked to someone in the romney campaign today who said the polls have simply not captured the republican intensity. we'll find out tomorrow whether that intensity is actually superior to the democrats. >>. >> thank you. candidates battling it out into the final hour, for sure. what is wall street expecting to see from president romney versus candidate romney? will he be harder on china? a lot of questions. >> mike satolli from yahoo! finance

read over the weekend, if romney doesn't win florida, it's almost impossible he can win the presidency almost by adding in any other combination of states. but there's likely to be gridlock in congress on again for another at least two years, possibly four years. if that's the case, either romney or obama will find their ability quite circumscribed. but there are key areas where either administration would follow fairly similar policies and they are related to expiration for oil and gas and production of oil and gas. it's forgotten now that a couple of months before the gulf of mexico disaster, the bp disaster in 2010, obama had opened up substantial areas off the atlantic coast of the u.s. more region ofs of the gulf of mexico and i think the west coast, as well, to exploration efforts. in other words, the obama administration was of the gulf and i think the west coast, as well, to exploration efforts. in other words, the obama administration was committed to increases production to help towards the long term goal of redur reducing energy import independence. that's a sentiment that r
